RE: I need a toad.

Well do you want an automatic or are you capable of a manual transmission? We tow a 13 Hyundai Elantra with a 6 speed trans. tows well easy to work on if needed. Be cautious of the gm products I have watched several videos on them being repaired and one was called the bmw of america. To repair a water pump about 1/2 of the engine compartment required being pulled. check you tube videos dont remember which guy did it but there have been more than 1.

RE: Looking for 1994 generator part: Onan 166-0779 Ignition Coil

go to a small engine shop and see if they have replacement electronic ignition parts and install one. Had issue on an old gen and when went looking for parts they told me to get rid of the ignition and sold me an add on electronic setup.

RE: Your Opinion On Air Bags

I have and have had bags on my trucks. Biggest thing they ADD capability to keeping it level and then that helps keep the trailer level and as a result may improve the areodynamics of the load since high front end causes more air resistance (?) low front on trailer increases resistance from the trailer (?). This all supesition but it does sound reasonable. My SIL has the v6 with turbos dont think he has/had bags just bought a new truck no towing yet but when he did tow it really did not squat. So you might want to weigh the truck with trailer and then see if you can determine hitch weight to see if too much weight is foreward on truck.

RE: 1983 Midas Kingston - free RV with a locked engine

go look at you tube videos on rv refurbishment. I have watched some and they are pretty entertaining while showing what has been happening and expected future results. I did a partial rebuild on a TT I got for the kids when they went to softball tournements and it wasnt hard BUT I did not tear it all apart. The framing on front was pretty well trashed due to leaking clearance lights so ended up replacing a lot of the forward framing using cripples and stuff to support the existing framing. Never did get around to working in rear bedroom as I sold the things since the kids never did use. It can be fun AND frustrating, so go review the youtube stuff and enjoy.

RE: Pre trip preparations...

you actually need to experiment with the air pressures for best results. I run 60-65 in front and 65-70 in rears. 60-70 in airbags. we do not load heavy only carry about 1/3 tank of water and empty grey/black. dont know if you have new/used rig so hard to say much more. If used may need new shocks to help. Some say buy the high dollar stuff I have read reviews on monroe shocks and they sound to be good. again if used check if you have a front stabilizer it may also need r&r.

RE: Tires---Ouch

check craigslist or whatever you have locally. Out here there are always new vehicle takeoff offered and there also a lot of independent tire sellers. Yes I know the costs are high as I had a bridgestone with a slipped tread over $1000 to replace all on rear with 1 being adjusted out. Had a tire separation on my F350 a couple of years ago tore up the bed on truck, called bridgestone who recommeded I go to their tires since its used mainly on highway. Again over $1000 with all being adjusted out per the manuf with the shop. SO just need to shop around or travel out your area for possible better deals.

RE: Drivetrain slipping?

Maybe get the vehicle checked for codes at a repair shop or even autozone or similar. Codes may not show but that might be the 1st thing to check imo.

RE: Just purchased a 2016 Cambria

We have a 2012 Aspect which is the sister vehicle from winnebago and we tow a 2013 Hyundai elantra. It all depends on what you want can do the elantra is a manual transmission model and we have probably equal or more towed miles on it than driven. It weighs around 2800 lbs, has good wheel stance and tows well. If you are limited to a automatic then you will need to search on as the hondas able to be towed are all older models. Some folks we knew bought a buick suv that they tow behind their DP but I dont know anything about which one etc. many say get a jeep but I know folks who had one and they have their share of issues and are not the most comfortable of vehicles if you plan to drive any distance. Good sam has a link to towed vehicles annually and I think it is due out next month for the current year. Do a site search for it for older/earlier vehicles. The hyundai are no longer 'towable" supposedly. Go to the roadmaster or other towing equipment sites they may have charts on available kits for various vehicles.
